Apex Pools & Spas Project 1
Despite the relatively small size of their outdoor space, the owners of this bayside Melbourne home had high hopes for what could be achieved. They presented Apex Pools & Spas with the challenge of maximising the area to create an integrated and versatile space that could be used year-round for gatherings of various scales.
The checklist for the project included a pool, complete with a swim-up bar and a subtle water feature, as well as an outdoor kitchen and entertainment area. By combining a considered and creative design with quality materials and professional workmanship, Apex Pools & Spas has transcended the brief to create a space that is as enjoyable to look at as it is to use.
The confined nature of the space meant that design was critical to ensure the area didn’t just look good but was also functional. Limiting the materials palette has streamlined the area and created the illusion of space.
Measuring 6m x 3m, the concrete pool is fully-tiled in white ceramics, highlighted by three Spa Electrics underwater LED lights. The basalt found on the sheer descent water wall is continued on the custom paving and coping, while bamboo and agave plantings complement the hard landscaping.
Matt Seymour and Steve Blencowe, the directors of Apex Pools & Spas, have a combined experience of 30 years in designing and constructing award-winning pool and landscape projects.
